Donna Barbara Bozak

Our family is remembering Donna who died October 29th, 2012 in Nelson, B.C. Donna was born in Hudson Bay Junction, Saskatchewan on February 7th, 1945. Home was located on a quarter section of land beautifully divided by the Fir River one mile west of town. Like so many who farmed there at that time, the land was not sufficiently sustaining. She moved with her family from their farm to Nelson in 1957 where she spent almost all of the rest of her life. She attended junior high and graduated from L.V. Rogers high school in 1963. Donna participated in many of the sports programs in high school and was a prominent part of the basketball team that was coached by Mrs. Clarkson. After graduating Donna worked as a printer’s apprentice, at Kootenay Forest Products and managed the Willow Bay Motel. Donna was cremated and her ashes are buried in an unmarked grave, as was her choice, in the Nelson Memorial Park Cemetery along with those of her mother, Eva Bozak, who preceded her in death in 1993. Her father, Mike Bozak, is buried in the Saint Dominic Roman Catholic Cemetery in Hudson Bay. Brothers Don and Bob, niece Nadia Bozak and nephew Michael survive her. The family wishes to thank the medical staff and friends who provided comfort for her in the final stage of her life.
